On the surface, it’s a normal alt-power, though because it’s in Emma’s POV, it takes a while to realize what powers Taylor has. In actuality, the world is very AU. Cauldron exists, but is different. The same goes for many characters. This fic sometimes changes POV from Emma, but it never goes to Taylor. Instead, Taylor is seen through multiple perspectives and damn, she’s a badass. Emma is a protagonist in the style of Cercei Lannister. She’s loathsome, but it’s fun to watch her get outsmarted and try to think her way out of situations. Spoiler Emma gets a Lung-variant power from alt-Cauldron, but still gets trounced by Taylor, who barely lifts a finger. It’s fitting that Taylor’s power is a variant of Oni Lee’s and boy, does she make it work. Despite the number of chapters, it feels like this story is still getting started. The writing is fun and I can’t wait to see how things progress. 3.5/5 -> 4/5.
